On April 19th, the Minister from Ministère des Forêts, de la Faune et des Parcs (MFFP) made the announcement of a financial measure to support the consolidation of infrastructures and the diversification of the activities in the outfitter sector. The Québec Outfitters Federation (QOF) is responsible for the management of this measure.
In recent weeks, we have been actively working to validate with the Ministry the action plan for this measure and release it for the first appeal of projects.
For this reason, we are pleased to announce today that outfitters may now apply for financial support for the following types of projects:
- Construction and/or improvement of infrastrucutures for accommodation and reception of guests, this may or may not include the standardization of environmental installations connected to these infrastructures;
- Environmental conformity of the installations (transition to renewable energies, wastewater and waste management);
- Planning of development projects to adapt, diversify and/or improve the offer in a postpandemic context.
The appeal of projects beginning today will be closed on August 29th, 2021. Many other appeals will be made by the QOF between now and the end of the measure in order to give the opportunity to as many outfitters as possible to take advantage of it.
All the documentation needed to prepare your application for financial assistance, as well as the deadlines for the upcoming application waves, are available on the QOF website.
